fish out of water


i’m like a fish out of water

flopping on the deck of a boat

watching as the others

happily bob and float


i’m like a fish out of water

scared to open my mouth

lest the wrong things

are what comes out


i’m like a fish out of water

flapping my stupid gills

trying to manifest my

non-existent people skills


i’m like a fish out of water

separated from my kin

but maybe i’ll grow a pair of legs

and sprout a new, thicker skin
